What a day for the Underdog this has been. Both teams that lost yesterday won today, both teams that won yesterday lost today. T20 cricket eh?

The Reds marshalled the chase perfectly, never panicking after losing a wicket and had solid contributions all down the order.

Commins may have fallen just before another deserved fifty, the Ford brothers came together and hit the boundary when they needed it. A six wicket win with 17 balls to spare shows how well they played.

Matt Ford hit the winning run and has just been announced as the player of the match. Well done to him and the Reds who pick up their first win of the season.

With the Reds picking up four points for the win, all the teams are in the same position as they started the day. Only one point separating the four teams, what will tomorrow bring?

Only one way to find out, please join me tomorrow for the final days play from Pembroke. This is Justin saying goodnight.
